Like many of its predecessors, in 2013 Dunkin Donuts joined the ranks of fast food chains pulling stunts with an over-the-top breakfast innovation, the glazed donut breakfast sandwich. It included a (reconstituted) egg, meat, and cheese, served between a glazed donut cut in half. It all feels inevitable, really. And as it was designed to do, the glazed donut breakfast sandwich caused a fervor on the internet that ranged from horror to — and perhaps this is more horrifying — absolutely giddy anticipation. On Twitter, one person lamented, “I’ve given up on humanity,” while another person celebrated by tweeting, “this is the epitome of everything that is right with America!!!!” It should be noted that despite resembling a heart attack in one meal, the glazed donut breakfast sandwich was mystifyingly somehow only 360 calories (via The Atlantic).
Love it or hate it, the glazed donut breakfast sandwich definitely got people talking, but it didn’t seem to live up to the hype. As predicted by people on Reddit, the real deal did not look anything like the glossy, plush sandwich depicted in promotional materials. Instead it was a sad, smushed egg sandwich served cold to preserve the donut glaze (via Gothamist). Nothing like some cold eggs and meat stuffed inside a donut to start your day! Only in America.
